Conservation Talk: Saving the Little 5, Aug. 9 2014 @ the Nairobi National Museum

Date: Saturday 9 August 2014
Venue: Louis Leakey Auditorium, Nairobi National Museum

SAVING THE ‘LITTLE FIVE’: Conserving the small mammals of Kenya
Did you know that the elephant shrew or golden-rumped sengi are found nowhere else on Earth but in the Arabuko/Gede forests in Malindi County, and that the African maned rat is the only vertebrate known in Kenya to apply plant poison on its coat to protect itself against predators?

Kenya is justifiably known for its ‘Big Five’ game animals that attract visitors from around the world; but it is also home to genetically unique small mammals that are not as visible but are also in need of protection in a difficult environment where they are often stranded in single populations.

Join Bernard Agwanda, Research Scientist & Mammal Curator at the National Museums of Kenya, as he explains the fascinating existence of these small creatures and what we can do to help protect them and their environment.

Screening: Frankenstein – A Danny Boyle Production from the National Theatre, May 18 & 24 2014 @ National Museum & Brookhouse School Respectively

Frankenstein
CrossCulture XC brings you the second production in its Theatre Series: National Theatre Live’s broadcast of Frankenstein is coming to NAIROBI. Frankenstein enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre London and went on to win awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.

Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) directs a sensational production with Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into Darkness, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, CBS’s Elementary) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.
Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

Dates and Timings
May 18th – National Museum of Kenya, Museum Hill
May 24th – Brookhouse School, Magadi Road, Karen

Bar and open seating from 2pm
Screening from 3pm

Cost: 2500KES

Exhibition: What’s New Under the Sun, Mar. 30-Apr. 30 2014 @ National Museum

what is new under the sun
Exhibition Opening: March 30, 2014 at 2 pm
Venue: Temporary Exhibition Hall , Nairobi National Museum

Runs Until: April 30, 2014

What’s new under the sun exhibition is a result of cooperation between two groups of pupils from the middle school in Tomice, Poland and eight schools in the Mathare in Nairobi.

35 pupils participated in a series of educational workshops during which they had a chance to know each other, to work in tandem on the same topic and to answer some questions: Who am I? What do we need to have to go on a journey together? How do we express our emotions?

The works which came out of these workshops impressed many; the Kenyan and Polish schoolchildren, their classmates, parents, teachers, friends, project coordinators, museum employees and spectators who came to watch out of pure interest.

The Polish- Kenyan exhibition has varying settings. It is presented in four usual-unusual places: a disused building in the Mathare turned into an art gallery, the Nairobi National Museum, the Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museum in Krakow, as well as Polish Nobel Laureate Secondary School in Tomice. We look at the works – what do we see? Teenagers’ energy, dreams, emotions, differences and similarities.

“I am afraid of things which have been discovered once and for all. I like the things which stay visible only for a few days”, said the Congolese writer Sony Labou Tansi.

We hope that by visiting this exhibition you too will experience a journey of discovery…

The exhibition will be accompanied by two art workshops for students in cooperation with the National Museum in Nairobi.

Project founders: Razem Pamoja Fundation, The Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museums in Krakow

Partners: Education Effect Africa, Commune of Tomice, Community Centre in Tomice

Exhibitions organisers: Razem Pamoja Foundations, The Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museums in Krakow, Nairobi National Museums

KMS Lecture: Natural Cultural Sites in Kenya, Mar. 29 2014 @ Louis Leakey Auditorium – National Museum

KMS
Date: Saturday 29 March 2014
Venue: Louis Leakey Auditorium, Nairobi National Museum

Do you know what cultural or sacred sites are? Do you know where they are in Kenya? Do know their value and the challenges facing the kaya forests and other sites as Kenya’s?

All Kenya’s ethnic groups recognized ‘special places’ in their landscapes, places where the normal daily activities of farming, herding or hunting were forbidden or strictly controlled. Such places might be trees, forests, rock outcrops, hills or mountains, and they are often referred to as ‘natural sacred sites’ or ‘natural cultural sites’. Their meanings related to indigenous religions, or locations where ‘first settlement’ by the ancestors of a particular ethnic group occurred, or sites for particular community meetings and rituals.

After the imposition of colonial rule, many cultural sites were destroyed or degraded, but others have survived and are now the focus of conservation efforts by a wide range of stakeholders, from local community members to national and international NGOs and transnational organizations.

To find out the answers to these questions and how cultural forests, rocks and hills can survive in increasingly intensively developed landscapes, you are invited to this intriguing and captivating talk by Dr. Celia Nyamweru, who has been studying Kenya’s natural cultural sites for nearly 20 years, in particular the kaya forests of the Kenya coast.

Screening: Butterfly People, Nov. 16 2013 @ National Museum

Butterfly People
Join the Kenya Museum Society for a relaxing Saturday afternoon, watching Butterfly People, a short, spectacular and insightful documentary, about the Samburu of northern Kenya.

Date: Saturday 16 November 2013
Venue: Louis Leakey Auditorium, Nairobi National Museum

Synopsis
The Samburu people of northern Kenya have, for centuries, followed a pastoral life. Their culture evolved into an age-grade system, wherein rites of passage were marked by complex rituals and ceremonies. Within the system, the turning point for every Samburu is circumcision, its purpose being to create a new generation of warriors, traditional protectors of the tribe. Circumcisions take place rarely, their timing determined by the stars.

Set against a background of varied and magnificent scenery, the film, made by Rhodia Mann, who was adopted into a Samburu family, begins with Rhodia’s personal involvement with the family. Through the life story of her Samburu ‘mother’, she blends historical fact with folklore and mythology to give a history of the people, as far as it is known. The story takes us from the past into the present, and ultimately to the fascinating circumcision ceremonies of 2005.

Rhodia is also a bead specialist and author. Her books will be on sale at the event.

Exhibition: Mwanamke ni Effort by James Njoroge, Nov. 6-30 2013 @ National Museum

Mwanamke ni Effort Cover
Exhibition Dates: 6th-30th November 2013 at the Nairobi National Museum
Entry: Museum Rates Apply

Barely six months after graduating from Kenyatta University James Njoroge, holds his first solo exhibition at The Prestigious Nairobi National Museum. The show is a tribute to his mother and to all Kenyan women who toil selflessly for their families.
Njoroge’s collection for this exhibition is a linear autobiography of his life brought up by a single mother. His works track the life of ‘mama soko’, her triumphs and travails.
Njoroge’s women are burdened – burdened by pitiable circumstances, burdened by errant husbands, burdened by single parenthood and fleeting youth; they are also somewhat faceless, marginalised by State and Men. In truth they are the back bone of Africa and Njoroge’s works force us to look at them, to value them, to acknowledge them.
